Time Out says

The game-changing alt-rock band are going back to their early years for their 2020 Australian tour

It’s been more than 30 years since Pixies released their first studio album, Surfer Rosa. The album introduced the world to a nonchalant, quiet-but-loud form of alternative rock that would go on to influence everyone from Nirvana to PJ Harvey. 

In 2020 Pixies are returning to their roots with a world tour that showcases the band’s seminal releases. The Come on Pilgrim...It’s Surfer Rosa tour gives you exactly what it says on the box – that is EP Come On Pilgrim and album Surfer Rosa played in full. That means punters will be blessed with bangers like the twangy, surprisingly surfy hit ‘The Holiday Song’; the mellow pop-rock of ‘Gigantic’; and of course the spine-tinglingly good ‘Where is My Mind’.

As well as playing their earliest releases in full, the Kim Deal-less Pixies (the current line-up features Black Francis, David Lovering, Joey Santiago and Paz Lenchantin) will perform old and new tracks from their 30 years in the biz. 

Pixies’ will perform at the Sydney Opera House on Saturday, March 14 2020. Nab presale tickets from 11am on Tuesday, August 6, with the full contingent available on August 8.
